 “Victoria Jackson hurtles through intersections and down side streets while using her left hand to hold a Flip cam to her face. The inside of her car—a weathered Honda Civic with “Nobama,” Marco Rubio, and Tea Party bumper stickers—smells like it has been fumigated with sweet incense. Steering with elbows and the occasional pinkie, she opens a Bible inscribed with her name and quotes Scripture in her inimitable high-pitched voice. Then she turns the camera on a reporter riding shotgun. She suspects he’s a socialist. “Don’t you think that some people are on welfare from cradle to grave,” she demands, “because the government is encouraging them never to work?”

“At age 52, Victoria Jackson bears little resemblance to that lithe and sweetly dopey girl with the grating voice on Saturday Night Live. And you wouldn’t recognize her from those eight mostly forgettable ’80s and ’90s feature films, such as I Love You to Death and No More Baths. She’s more plump. Or as Howard Stern recently put it, she “looks like she ate Victoria Jackson.” “
